Isabelle Mashola, becoming independent through entrepreneurship

September 9, 2019

This week, discover the portrait of,Isabelle Mashola CEO and co-founder of isahit in The echoes.

She was named one of the 40 most influential women in the B to B by the B2B Rocks conference.

"In large groups, the higher up the hierarchy you go, the more you are what you say, and less what you do," she says.

"Isahit acts as an intermediary between companies like Sodexo, Adecco or BNP that need to clean or sort data, and 1,200 women in Africa. "But it's not just crowdsourcing, with us, the women only work a maximum of 100 hours a month, and must have a side project, which this work is used to finance. Today, this Franco-Greek says she is "happy with [herself]", and plans the future of her company: Isahit is currently setting up in Manila (Philippines) and should expand to Latin America next year. »
